Background: The antimicrobial property ofhas been tested against a variety of microorganisms in the literature. The present study aimed to assess the antimicrobial activity of different concentrations of commercially availablepowder against.

Materials and Methods: Anstudy was undertaken in which extract ofwas obtained using 100% ethanol by maceration. Seven different concentrations were prepared and tested againstin brain-heart infusion agar medium. Plates were incubated aerobically at 37°C for 48 h, and zone of inhibition was measured using Vernier caliper. 0.2% chlorhexidine and dimethylformamide were used as positive and negative controls respectively. The data were analysed by descriptive analytic tests.

Results: The maximum antibacterial activity ofwas observed with a volume of 40μl at 2% concentration with a zone of inhibition of 19 mm. A 30 μl volume of 0.2% chlorhexidine showed a zone of inhibition of 28 mm, and no zone of inhibition was observed with dimethylformamide.

Conclusion: exhibited antimicrobial activity against. However, it needs to be confirmed further withstudies.
